Rev. Colin Samul Elder Greg Kothman
We welcome you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We hope you will be encouraged and edified, having heard Biblical
truth in love.
Great Basin RP is a member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of
North America, one of the oldest denominations in the United States.
We are committed to the doctrines of Scripture and the formation of
loving community as a necessary fruit of the Gospel.
In light of the above, we believe that the most comprehensive and accurate summary of biblical teaching is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, together with the Westminster Larger and
Shorter Catechisms. These documents were completed in 1647 as a summary of Christian belief and practice, with the desired intention of helping Christ’s church become unified in doctrine, government, and worship (John 17:11). In addition to the Westminster Standards, we also maintain the Testimony of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of
North America, which is our denomination’s own continuing and contemporary application of the Word of God to our current culture and context.

This Week’s Confessional Meditation
 Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith;  Which faith unless every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.
 And the catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity;  Neither confounding the persons, nor dividing the substance.  For there is one person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Spirit.  But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit is all one, the glory equal, the majesty co-eternal.
 Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Spirit.  The Father uncreated, the Son uncreated, and the Holy Spirit uncreated.  The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible, and the Holy Spirit incomprehensible.  The Father eternal, the Son eternal, and the Holy Spirit eternal.  And yet they are not three eternals, but one eternal.  As also there are not three uncreated nor three incomprehensibles, but one uncreated and one incomprehensible.  So likewise the Father is almighty, the Son almighty, and the Holy Spirit almighty;  And yet they are not three almighties, but one almighty.
 So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God;  And yet they are not three Gods, but one God.  So likewise the Father is Lord, the Son Lord, and the Holy Spirit Lord;  And yet they are not three Lords, but one Lord.  For like as we are compelled by the Christian truth to acknowledge every Person by himself to be God and Lord;  So are we forbidden by the catholic religion to say: There are three Gods or three Lords.
 The Father is made of none, neither created nor begotten.  The Son is of the Father alone; not made nor created, but begotten.  The Holy Spirit is of the Father and of the Son; neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.  So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; one Holy Spirit, not three Holy Spirits.  And in this Trinity none is before, or after another; none is greater, or less than another.  But the whole three persons are co-eternal, and co-equal.  So that in all things, as said before, the Unity in Trinity and the Trinity in Unity is to be worshipped.  He therefore that will be saved must thus think of the Trinity. – The Athanasian Creed
From the Pastor’s Study
A backslider, if there be a spark of life left in him will groan after restoration. In this renewal the same exercise of grace is required as at our conversion. We needed repentance then; we certainly need it now. We wanted faith that we might come to Christ at first; only the like grace can bring us to Jesus now. We wanted a word from the Most High, a word from the lip of the loving One, to end our fears then; we shall soon discover, when under a sense of present sin, that we need it now. No man can be renewed without as real and true a manifestation of the Holy Spirit's energy as he felt at first, because the work is as great, and flesh and blood are as much in the way now as ever they were. Let thy personal weakness, O Christian, be an argument to make thee pray earnestly to thy God for help. Remember, David when he felt himself to be powerless, did not fold his arms or close his lips, but he hastened to the mercy-seat with "renew a right spirit within me." Let not the doctrine that you, unaided, can do nothing, make you sleep; but let it be a goad in your side to drive you with an awful earnestness to Israel's strong Helper. O that you may have grace to plead with God, as though you pleaded for your very life--"Lord, renew a right spirit within me." He who sincerely prays to God to do this, will prove his honesty by using the means through which God works. Be much in prayer; live much upon the Word of God; kill the lusts which have driven your Lord from you; be careful to watch over the future uprisings of sin. The Lord has his own appointed ways; sit by the wayside and you will be ready when he passes by. Continue in all those blessed ordinances which will foster and nourish your dying graces; and, knowing that all the power must proceed from him, cease not to cry, "Renew a right spirit within me." – Charles Spurgeon
